My favorite place to fly. I’ve taken every drone I have ever owned, into the cove; today was the first time I experienced flying while the fog started to push (more like rush) back inland. I was a bit nervous and thought about landing early. I’m glad I didn’t as the Mavic 2 Zoom provided some incredible footage.


Shark tooth Cove/Shark fin info:

A massive rock stands guard over a small cove full of geologic wonders just up the coast from Santa Cruz, only 0.7 miles south of the town of Davenport.

The main geologic feature, visible from Highway 1, has inspired two interchangeable names: Shark Fin Cove and Shark Tooth Beach. This beach is most certainly a cove, however, and it’s fun to imagine the size of shark lurking beneath a fin of that size, so we’re using the former here.

Please note, that although some folks refer to this beach as Davenport Cove, this is not the same spot as Davenport Beach or Davenport Landing Beach.


Now that we have the name settled, how does a rock end up looking like the appendage of a cartilaginous fish? If only there was an ancient myth handed down from generation to generation that told the story of a prehistoric megalodon who hunted the waters just off the cove’s shores to explain the origin of this rock. Alas, there’s not, so we’ll let science give us the more down-to-earth version.

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years ago the shark fin was an extension of the mudstone cliff that encloses this beach. Over the years, the force of the crashing waves and whistling winds steadily eroded away the rock in a process called coastal geomorphology.

The rock now stands as we see it today: A small island that catches the light at sunset so compellingly that photographers travel from all over the country to capture its timeless beauty.

Really, this is geology at its finest.

Thanks for watching!

Turbulent water!

Where I come from, such a place would have a sign: "No swimming. No drones." and will be littered with beer cans.
